ICM WORKSHOPS: Scheduled & Requested

(This Chart may only be used with prior permission from Laura Madsen)

Spacious presence within a group reveals a movement where our Soul and our belonging in our world become more coherent. This allows more generosity, compassion, and understanding in our relationships with ourselves and others.

Understanding the Inner Constellation Mobile (ICM)

  • The ICM is a group practice of inner attunement. With willingness and courage, we discover a profound depth intelligence living within our nervous system. When accessed, this intelligence allows a more conscious relationship with ancestral & collective trauma patterns and the movement of our soul.
  • The network of nerves within the limbic system influence the deep emotions of fear, pleasure, and anger. Emotions are key for healing as they are our building blocks for relationship—with self, others, and all life forms.
  • This connective intelligence is attributed in part to the limbic system living at the edge of the brain’s cortex—limbic is from Latin limbus, meaning “edge.” The evolution of our consciousness literally lives on the “edge” between the emotional wounding of our conditioning and the emerging potential of our Soul.
  • A traumatized limbic system is asynchronous, presenting emotions and moods that appear disconnected and frozen or erratic and impulsive. When these emotions are seen and felt as trapped energy rather than “wrong” they begin finding their place within the relational resonance of the ICM.
  • The transpersonal nature of the ICM supports a relational belonging for ancestral and cultural trauma. When emotional intelligence expands to include trauma, transcendent networks of our Soul’s intelligence also come alive in the nervous system.

Scheduled 2022 Fall ICM Workshops                                                                                         

All ICM Workshops are from 10 AM to 1 PM (PST), and ICM Follow-up groups are from 10 to 11:30 AM (PST). (Please note prices below.)

Saturday Sept. 17 (Includes Saturday Sept. 24 Follow-up group).

Wednesday Oct. 26  (Includes Wednesday Nov. 2 Follow-up group).

Saturday Nov. 26  (Includes Saturday Dec. 3 Follow-up group).                                                    

Note: Due to the Zoom formatting, workshops are limited to 11 participants. Please check availability before registering (by texting or calling 1-604-222-4111).

Triads: During the Follow-up groups, we will gather in groups of 3 or 4 to share our experiences. Triads are a practice of sharing and listening from our body and heart in a connected way. Reflective insights are welcome, but discussion and/or advice-giving are discouraged.

FOLLOW-UP SESSIONS: focus on the profoundly connecting resonance of the human voice using five vowel sounds. Sound has a way of connecting directly to the nervous system: we hear from the womb, just as sound is the last sense to leave us as we are dying. We are held in a universe of sound frequency at the depth of our Soul. The gentle enlivening effect of attuned vocal sound relaxes the nervous system and allows further integration from the ICM workshop the week before. Accurately attuned vocal sounds help to connect us more precisely with alienated or numb inner aspects we are habitually unaware of. A general sense of “slowing down” to make contact with these place can produce either a sense of tiredness and/or deep peace.

Group Inner Constellation Mobiles (ICM)

The intimate and transpersonal nature of healing in the ICM Workshops reveals our spiritual capacity to hold space for both wounded patterns and soul-potential. Augmented by the group’s attuned listening-process, increased insight and relational depth increases. Within this spacious energy-field, healing occurs organically.  
Creating a group field that allows trauma contractions to surface requires a coherent stillness where nothing is pushed or “fixed.” Paradoxically it is the non-movement of stillness that allows healing movements to awaken within our nervous systems. When several bodies do this, it influences the collective field. We begin to breathe a sort of collective inner-space together–a permission to be authentically present with what is emerging now. A transpersonal healing modality allows us to access trauma-symptoms in our nervous systems, while also feeling the simple beauty of human connection.
This work is original and organic. I continue to learn and grow from it as my understanding of the ICM evolves. I am grateful for the vessel of learning it provides and for the courageous participants willing to explore with me. As of November 2021, the current working title of my doctoral thesis is Constellating the Sacred in Everyday Life: Belonging in our Becoming.

 The Origin of the ICM

In 2018, after ten years of studying and leading groups in the relationship between inner-stillness and living in the world, a “map of the territory” emerged. I have called the map an “Inner Constellation Mobile” (ICM) as it reveals more clearly the inner-dynamics we inevitably encounter in stillness. It spells out the movement of both our belonging and our becoming: i.e., the movement of the conditioned and ancestral influences of how we have learned to belong in the world, as well as our timeless potential as soul. As the mobile takes shape organically, a deep healing process begins between the constellations. We discover that healing and integration begin naturally when our numb or activated trauma patterns are seen and experienced by participants. We come to a visceral understanding that one person’s healing is every-person’s healing.

The ICM conveys our relationship to Silence and inner-stillness as an energetic-movement that can be felt in our nervous system. It is comprised of the Soul (spaciousness and listening) interfacing with the complexity of centuries of human conditioning (including family/ancestral and cultural constellations). Succinct, yet mobile, the six different constellations become an embodied representation of our inner landscape.

As in Family Constellations work, the Inner Constellations are energetically represented by other participants. When participants are chosen to “energetically” represent one of the constellations, they begin to experience the nature of transpersonal relationship. We discover that the energetic movement we are representing also exists in us! Undermining habits of “othering” and separation, we experience the liberating truth of our oneness with all of life. No matter what appears in the constellated aspects, it is the same evolutionary impulse restoring us to life.
